Srinagar, June 02 (KMS): In Indian illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir, National Conference President, Farooq Abdullah, on Thursday expressed serious concern over the deteriorating security scenario in the Kashmir valley.
Presiding over a meeting of the Provincial Committee (Kashmir) of NC in Srinagar, he reiterated the party’s stand to peacefully fight for the restoration of IIOJK’s identity and dignity.
He said, the killing spree and the pervasive fear among civilians, minorities and other soft targets give a lie to the claims of the Indian government that everything was ok in Kashmir which is not the case. While our brothers and sisters are being targeted in daylight, the Indian government has its head in the sand, he said, this ostrich approach will push the situation to a point of no return.
The NC chief said, an employee becomes a target in a busy office, or a cop gets killed at home, if this is the new face of normalcy, I cannot say anything.
Provincial Committee members echoed the sentiments of the party president and expressed concern over the crumbling security scenario in Kashmir. All the members present in the meeting unanimously passed two resolutions condemning the spate of targeted civilian killings and ED summons to party President Farooq Abdullah.
Party’s Vice President Omar Abdullah, General Secretary Ali Muhammad Sagar, additional general secretary Dr Sheikh Mustafa Kamaal, and Provincial President Nasir Aslam Wani also spoke on the occasion.
